Muscat – The Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) is set to present the annual military music concert – Military Music: Oman and the World – with special guest performers from France and Japan over three nights on November 3, 4 and 5 at 7pm.
Bands from across Oman’s military corps and police force, men and women, march in formation to familiar and popular musical arrangements. The marches are carefully and precisely choreographed demonstrating practised discipline and musicianship.
For 2022, The Western Army Band of Japan, an ensemble from a nation whose reputation for flawless pageantry is admired around the world; and The Band of the French Foreign Legion, a historic institution dating back to the early 1800s, whose military marches are legendary, will enthral the guests.
The concert is a popular event and a festival conceived to demonstrate the global arm of friendship extended by Oman and ROHM across the world. In recent years, the festival has invited countries from every continent to join the display, sharing their cultural vibrancy and glorious pageantry to delighted audiences.
Held on the Al Maidan in the forecourt of the Royal Opera House Muscat, this spectacular production nurtures an atmosphere of great fun, and sincere mutual appreciation, with presentations which inspire national pride and cultural curiosity.
